    Thank you. I was hoping it would spark enough interest from some of our other participants so that they'd post some pictures too. I love seeing what others are making. Hint, hint, Ladies!!

    What was the decision about having or not having to use Patriotic prints? I've started a really cool block using r/w/b but not Patriotic.

    Decsion??

    QUESTION:

    If we create paper-pieced blocks, should we tear off the paper before swapping or leave the paper on the block when we send it in?

    I would vote LEAVE ON because the person receiving it could remove the paper after the block was stabilized with an adjoining fabric (sashing or another block) and that will give us a place to write our names.

    I will do what the hostess tells us.

    Thank you

    I am interested (would do 5 sets), but not sure I understand how many blocks I would receive back in exchange. Would I receive back one block from each set submitted? Or would they be totally random but each block different? Or would I be receiving back sets? This would be my first time participating in a swap. I love Americana so this swap peaked my interest! Just trying to understand how it works....

    You will get back the same number of blocks that you send in. Each block you get back will be in a different pattern. Join us, you will get some gorgeous blocks back. Plus, you'll get some fabrics that aren't available in your area. Swaps are so fun! And..we have a fabulous hostess!

    I'm not sure if I can join in on this one but sure want to after seeing the great blocks so far. I will have to look at my schedule and see if I think I can produce on time. I don't have a RWB quilt so this would be great.

    jclinganrey-
    I don't know what the name of your block is, but it's similar to my Weathervane Star. I really do like yours. It's very pretty. Hope someone can come up with the name of it for us.

    I think I've discovered the name of your block. Check out "Quatrefoils" on Quilters Cache. I believe that's it. Someone just made one for me in the Short & Sweet swap. Only difference I see is in color placement in the corner 4 patches. Hopefully, mystery solved!

    Jackpot, Libster! Of course, I made mine 12 1/2" unfinished. What a wealth of brilliance we have on this site. Thank you! After some asking around, I kind of came up with 'Weathervane' meets 'Sukey's Choice'. So glad you found the name.
